Cancer requires various treatment modalities based on realistic goals that can be achieved for each type of cancer. Chemotherapy has advantages over other therapies because chemotherapy drugs are able to have a systemic effect in damaging cancer cells even though the cancer cells undergo metastases far spread from their original place. Cancer patients during chemotherapy experience sleep disorders and fatigue complaints. This study aims to determine the relationship of sleep quality with fatigue in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The design of this study is quantitative using a cross sectional approach. The method of sample collection is purposive sampling. The study sample was 30 cancer patients who underwent chemotherapy. The measurement of sleep quality uses the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) instrument and the measurement of fatigue uses the Brief Fatigue Inventory (BFI) instrument. Chi square test results showed that there was a significant relationship between sleep quality and fatigue (p-value=0.001). Conclusion nursing intervention is needed for the quality of sleep in an effort to overcome fatigue in cancer patients.

Abstract


Cancer requires various treatment modalities based on realistic goals that can be achieved for each type of cancer. Chemotherapy has advantages over other therapies because chemotherapy drugs are able to have a systemic effect in damaging cancer cells even though the cancer cells undergo metastases far spread from their original place. Cancer patients during chemotherapy experience sleep disorders and fatigue complaints. This study aims to determine the relationship of sleep quality with fatigue in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The design of this study is quantitative using a cross sectional approach. The method of sample collection is purposive sampling. The study sample was 30 cancer patients who underwent chemotherapy. The measurement of sleep quality uses the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) instrument and the measurement of fatigue uses the Brief Fatigue Inventory (BFI) instrument. Chi square test results showed that there was a significant relationship between sleep quality and fatigue (p-value=0.001). Conclusion nursing intervention is needed for the quality of sleep in an effort to overcome fatigue in cancer patients.
